Watching the Florida State football team lose to Oregon on New Year’s Day was not shocking nor disappointing, given the impressive performance of the Ducks. What was disheartening was the poor sportsmanship displayed by both teams; many of the Seminoles headed to the locker room instead of shaking hands with the victors, and several Oregon team members openly mocked Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the accusation of sexual assault that has followed him for the past…Continue

Yes, I’ve borrowed this statement from the Christmas song with the same name. And this concept, as the song ran through my head (over and over again after hearing it), reminded me that each and everyone of us is an artist, trading a day of our lives for what we create each day.

Whatever was already created this year is done, baked, and hardened. All we…Continue

Recruiting fairs are an effective way to meet many candidates for your open positions, scope out the competition for top talent, and network with other recruiters. As an exhibitor, you might think that you have an advantage at such events; after all, you aren’t the one trying to impress…Continue

Like a computer with a well functioning operating system, companies that perform exceptionally well year after year have a well planned Renewable Operating System (ROS). Better than a strategic plan, an ROS creates a better way of doing business with speed, agility, and reduced effort, similar to the powerful processors in today’s technical devices.
